NIH claims that Montgomery County Public Schools will be able to accommodate any increase in students, should it add additional employees over the next 20 years. At present, NIH expects 3000 current Bethesda-area off-site employees and contractors to be shifted to the Bethesda campus. It assumes, therefore, that their kids are already enrolled in the school system.
The report says that NIH is committing to retaining the campus-like feel of the facility in any further on-site development. Reviews will be conducted every five years over the 20-year life of the plan.
